Design and create jewellery with friends...

Tree Sparrow Treasures run jewellery making parties that will have children thrilled with their creative potential and will teach them skills for future jewel making sessions. We come to you armed with an array of glass, resin and pearl beads to help the children create magical pieces that they will treasure.

"Just wanted to send you a quick email to say a huge thanks for Aura's birthday party on Saturday.  I know Aura really loved it and the girls and their parents were very impressed by it.  Will definitely keep you in mind for future birthday and events and will refer friends to you.Thanks again! Take care, Rachael" (August)


Party packages

We offer three specific packages. The first for younger girls who will enjoy arranging their bead designs on beading trays then making their unique pieces. We will assist with the finishing off process if required. The second one is for older girls who will have their own set of hand tools and be taught some basic techniques. The third is an extension of this.There is a more complex design process involved here.The girls will design, create and complete their own work.
